Today, I’m sharing the third in a series of projects that feature Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper, one of the incredible options available during 2015 Sale-a-Bration. This paper is an A+ option, so you’ll want to pick up a bunch of this so you don’t get left out. 🙂 If you missed my other cards, please check them out here and here. Here’s today’s card:
- Sponging the Paper. To create the soft background on today’s card, I lightly sponged Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point on the Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper. After a couple of failed attempts, I realized that I couldn’t mix the blue and green too much. Why? Because yellow and blue make green. I really like the celestial appeal of the misty blue and yellow backdrop.
- Leave it Alone. This specialty paper is great when inked up – it allows for bold pops of white. The paper is also pretty beautiful when left alone. As such, I framed the painted paper with a border of “left alone” Designer Series Paper. You can’t see all of the stars on the outside border in this picture, but they are there – and I like the subtle dimension they add.
- Masked Sentiment. This sentiment, from Fabulous Four in the Annual Catalog, is one of my all-time favorite fonts (have I ever told you how much I love fonts?). “Celebrate” can be used for so many different occasions, but this stamp comes with “Amazing Spectacular Fantastic You”. Because I wanted to make a baby card, I decided to mask these four additional words. I simply taped over the words I didn’t want, inked up the stamp and then removed the tape before stamping the words on the white banner. I filmed a video that shows this technique (and shows it with this very stamp image) – see it here.
